    Default Permie pay rise….

    This is a complete joke.

    We are having to put in a good case why we deserve a pay rise.

    The pot is less that 1.75% each.

    I can hardly get excited by this, hence I really cannot take it seriously!

    Usual salute the flag rot of blaming the economy while the company is bucking the trend and doing better, and told to be glad we have a job.

    Roll on being able to get back into contracting – too rocky out there at present for my liking!

    Are you 1.75% better at your job this year?

    If you're work is as appealing as the majority of your posts, you shouldn't be getting a rise at all!

    Remind me again why I work as a contractor?

    You chose to be a permie. Stop moaning and accept your fate.
    Sval-Baard Consulting Ltd - we're not satisfied until you're not satisfied.

    Nothing says "you're a loser" more than owning a motivational signature about being a winner.

    Many contractors have not had rate increases for ages and many are taking rate cuts on extensions & new gigs... a pay rise seems like a result.

    Do you get a gold star for your name badge as well as your pay rise?
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    Did you exceed all of your KPIs?
    Was your 360 degree appraisal unanimously positive?
    Did you arrive before the boss every morning and leave after him every evening?
    Did you grovel with sufficient sycophancy at the company Christmas dinner?
    Did you arrive with an ironed shirt, shiny shoes and a company tie every day?

    If you can answer yes to all these questions then you’re a grovelling little permieturd who should be told to keep your gob shut or go and work for yourself.
    If you answer no to any of these questions then you don’t deserve a pay rise.
